IT'S OLIVIA (NO NEWTON-JOHN)!
Personally, I am not a big Gorilla Unit fan, so when I heard that singer Olivia had been dropped from the crew, I wasn't too concerned. Supposedly, she wasn't pulling her own weight when it came to finishing her new album, and there were some creative differences between her and 50 Cent? The reality is that G-Unit's future in rap music looks pretty grim, especially when the head zoo keeper 50 Cent a.k.a Greasy Pocket Change seems to have put his crew on the back burner to concentrate more on his own endeavors. How dare he, ole' selfish bastid! According to a couple of interviews I've read recently involving 50 Cent, he has clearly stated that each member of the G-Unit camp needs to step up to the plate when it comes to their individual futures. He will no longer be carrying the crew on his back, so they'll need to play a bigger role in their own promotion and overall success? I can't really blame him for that, because folks do need to get on their own grind and stop waiting for the next man to pave their way. Dayum, now who's going to help Yayo write his rhymes now??
While some may feel that G-Unit dropping Olivia is a pimp slap in the face, and possibly the end of her stagnated music career, I think it will actually help her become a better singer? I mean compared to the young group of female singers making hits today, Olivia can definitely hang with the best of them vocally with the right material of course. She was pretty decent in her pre-Gorilla Unit days, for those that can remember that far back? I know some dudes have called her the sexiest dude in the G-Unit camp, but I think she's actually pretty hot and tempting! No, she definitely won't win the Miss Universe contest, but she does have certain sex appeal. Musically though, things are not so good. Sadly, I have put ears on a leaked version of Olivia's infamous G-Unit album release a minute ago, and it was just mediocre at best. It had a couple hot joints on it, but most of it sounded like rehashed filler material! The music industry will be just fine if that album never sees the light of day....
All is not lost though because Olivia is back in 2007 with a new joint produced by Timbo & Missy Elliott called "Cherry Pop" that's trying to make some noise? Put your ears on this one and hear what you think? Does is suck or not?

Oh yeah, did ya'll see how 50 Cent played the 2007 BET Music Awards soft during his live performance of the wackalicious "Amusement Park" track last night! He was obviously a little pissed off that some katz booed him, and nobody was into his performance or even his presence on the stage! Ouch!! This led to 50 showing us his cocky side once again by not starting his vocals on cue, and ending his performance prematurally? Of course he had a million and one excuses about why those thing happened, but I'm not buying it. Actually, I think he did the viewers a huge favor! Thanks Fiddy!! When somebody comes through with the video footage, I'll be sure to post it! On second thought, maybe not!!
